This DIY Glitter Pencil Pouch has mermaid and unicorn vibes with chunky glitter inside! I love the chunky glitter I used, it’s so fun! And the best part is, I upcycled the vinyl from a package from bedsheets! All you need is vinyl, a zipper and lots of glitter! This glitter pencil pouch is too cool for school and its perfect timing with back-to-school right around the corner!
I sewed this pouch together using 4 layers of vinyl. If you’ve never sewn with vinyl before, it’s not hard if you know one trick! Use a teflon or non-stick foot, which will allow the vinyl to slide right through. If you don’t have one, you can put a piece of tape on the bottom of your presser foot which will help!
The best part is dumping the glitter inside – so fun!
This chunky glitter assortment has different sizes of glitter so you can make your own mix for each pouch.
Cut 4 layers of vinyl 9″ wide by 5″ tall. Sew 2 together around the side and bottom edges using a zig zag stitch.
Fill it up with glitter until it is about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way full. I used about 4 different glitters mixes together!
Clip your zipper to the front of the pouch with the zipper face down.
Align your needle closer to the zipper before sewing. I have it aligned all the way to the left.
Repeat on the other side.
Fold pouch with right sides together and clip both pieces together.
And your pouch is done!
